Reporting with ShipReport:


When you launch ShipReportXL, you will see four report type buttons: Start Sea Passage, Noon At Sea, End
Sea Passage, and Noon In Port For at sea reporting, please use the Start Sea Passage report upon departure,
the Noon At Sea reports while at sea and the End Sea Passage report upon arrival.
Depending on your companys reporting policy, please submit all Departure, Arrival and daily At Sea & In Port reports
through ShipReport. For In Port reporting, please use the Noon In Port report every day while in port.
When beginning a passage, please submit a Start Sea Passage report. When filing your daily reports, please use the
Noon At Sea report for each day. After creating submitting and saving a Start Sea Passage report, ShipReportXL
will auto-fill some information on subsequent Noon At Sea reports every day until an End Sea Passage report is
filed. Every day you create a Noon At Sea report, begin by clicking on the Noon At Sea button.
IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT OPEN AN EXISTING REPORT, MODIFY IT AND RESUBMIT FOR THE NEW DAY.
THIS REPORT WILL BE INVALID, CAUSE FAILURES IN SHORESIDE SYSTEMS, AND REQUIRE YOUR RECREATION OF SUCH REPORTS BY THE CORRECT METHOD.
To start creating a Start Sea Passage, Noon-At Sea, End of Sea Passage, or Noon In Port report, click on
the appropriate tab, fill in all appropriate information on each of the tabs and hit the Send Report button to submit.
Required fields will have a * near them and the fields may appear to have a pink background. Disabled fields will be
grayed out. Some fields are disabled on certain report types to make clear that this information is not to be submitted
for that report.
NOTE: In the SCHEDULE section of the PORTS & SCHEDULE tab, the Actual Start of Sea Passage is
defined by the Event Date / Time at the top of the report. Ordered ETA to Next Port is for instructed
and Current ETA to next port is for ships estimated arrival. Ordered Speed to Next Port is a
mandatory field and must be updated whenever ordered speed changes.

Jeppesen Proprietary

October 2014

NOTE: If your destination is not a port, but a location at sea, please choose the At Sea location from
the Arrival Port destination list. Kindly add additional information about your destination to the
Comments field, if desired. Please DO NOT create a new port for your location, as this will cause your
reports to fail in our shore-side system and we will need to ask for you to correct and resubmit your
report.

Report layout & Tabs


While the same tabs appear on every type of report in ShipReportXL, some fields and even some tabs may be grayed
out, if that information is not relevant for that report type. Please note that your tabs may vary slightly from the tabs
described below, based upon the type of report you are viewing and any customizations made to ShipReportXL for your
company of vessel.

GENERAL INFORMATION:
At the top of each report is the GENERAL INFORMATION section. This section contain important base information about
the report, such as the event date and time plus UTC Offset (which very important), the Voyage ID, the names of the
Master and others, and general comments. You have the option of reporting all events in UTC, in which case you can set
the Offset to +0.

Jeppesen Proprietary

October 2014

Some fields are required, (denoted by an asterisk and pink colored field), and some are optional.
The Event Date & Time refer to exactly when the information recorded in this report is for. This may vary from the
actual date and time when the report is created. The ZD / UTC offset is a critical part of this report. Your reports may be
setup to capture ZD or UTC, depending on how your Settings screen is configured. The UTC time of the report is
always shown to the right of the Event Date / Time line and is an important check for you to validate that your event
date and time are correct. If in doubt about ZD / UTC offset, you can simply report the event time as UTC, and set the
Offset to +0. See Note below.
NOTE: You can leave the ZD or UTC offset to +0 if you prefer to report in UTC. Jeppesen accepts local
Date/Time with proper time zone offset or UTC reporting equally. Please utilize the method that works
best for your vessel and please be consistent and accurate with whichever method you chose.

PORTS & SCHEDULE Tab:


The PORTS & SCHEDULE tab is primarily for capturing information pertaining to the overall passage.
Select your departure and arrival ports from the searchable dropdown menu accessed by clicking on the Departure
Port and Arrival Port... buttons. Once selected, subsequent reports for this passage will use the same departure and
arrival ports until an Arrival report is submitted).
NOTE: If the arrival port changes mid-passage, you can change the destination port here simply by
selecting a new arrival port from the list.

Jeppesen Proprietary

The actual Start of Sea Passage End of Sea Passage dates and time are set by the Event Date / Time (local) field of the
Start Sea Passage and End Sea Passage reports, respectively. The End Sea Passage date & Time should be changed
only if the scheduled arrival date & time changes. Once selected, subsequent reports for this passage will use the same
Start Sea Passage and End Sea Passage dates & times until an Arrival report is submitted). Both of these fields are
required.
The Current ETA to Next Port field is optional and is intended to capture the ETA the vessel believes it will have when
it differs from the Ordered ETA to Next Port date & time. This can be updated as often as the Master deems
appropriate, (on each report).
The Request Routing Support field is for those clients leveraging Jeppesens FleetManager toolset to facilitate
forwarding your requests for routing support to our Routing Services team. On each new report this field defaults to
No. If routing support is desired, change to Yes each time you submit a report. If your company utilizes this
functionality, your vessel management team will inform you that this is to be used. Otherwise, you can ignore this field.

DECK Tab:
The DECK tab collects information about vessel movements associated with that report. There are sections on this
screen for vessel position at the event time of the report (the date and time in the GENERAL INFORMATION section),
progress since the last report, progress since start of sea passage, balances of the passage remaining, weather and sea
conditions since the last report, and loading conditions. While many fields are not required by ShipReport, please follow
company policies when determining which fields must be completed.

Watch Detail:
Some companies opt to use ShipReportXLs Watch Detail screen, which capture weather and sea conditions every four
hours, rather than once for each reporting period. If Watch Detail functionality is enabled for your ShipReportXL
installation, you will see that fields for entering daily weather and sea values are colored and not editable, and a Watch
Detail button is present in the WEATHER & SEA CONDITIONS and SINCE LAST EVENT sections.

FUEL CONS & ROB Tab:


The FUEL CONS & ROB tab captures consumption by fuel and machinery types, as well as ROB values by fluid type.
For some machinery types, fuel consumption reporting is required, even if the amount consumed is 0. For others,
reporting is optional. Required fields are denoted in the Fuel Bunkers & Consumption window by the asterisk and pink
fields. While many fields are not required by ShipReportXL, please follow your company policies when determining
which fields must be completed.

The TERMS tab is for capturing warranted performance for daily fuel and speed, as well as defining good weather
thresholds for seas and wind. After submitting terms at the beginning of a passage, these values do not need to be filled
in again for the remainder of the passage - unless they change.

CUSTOM Tab:
The CUSTOM tab may contain custom fields that have been setup for your vessel or company. Alternatively, such
custom fields may be located at the bottom of other tabs, leaving no fields to be displayed on this tab.

EVENTS Tab:
The EVENTS tab is for recording various events at any point in a vessels operations. This section is designed to
capture spanning and single-point events, and their associated fuel consumption for both At Sea and In Port
periods. You may create multiple events on any report; however, events that span more than one reporting
period are captured on the report of the day in which the events ends.

Jeppesen builds and maintains the list of events you will see in the Event Type list. If there are events you do
not see listed that you would like to see, please contact Jeppesen to request their addition In the Events list you
will find a generic event: Other. If you must report an event that is not in the list, please use the Other
event, and in the comments section of the Add Event window, describe the nature of the event.

Jeppesen Proprietary

October 2014

Events are always recorded on the report spanning when an event ends. For example, if an event begins 6 hours
before the end of day 1 and concludes 12 hours after the start of day 2, add an event to the day 2 report, and
attribute all 18 hours of time, as well as all distance and fuel associated with the whole event on the day 2
report.

Submitting Reports:
To submit, click the Send Report button. ShipReportXL will perform a check of all fields. Some fields will not allow you
to proceed with sending the report if critical errors or omissions are detected. Some fields will warn you that the entry
fails the check but you can proceed if you insist. The No Corrections Continue button will be disabled if any critical
errors or omissions exist.
